No truth to reports that IDF sought to arm Palestinian Authority: sources

DEBKAfile's defense and political sources reported on Wednesday that there is no truth to media reports that the IDF recommended a series of concessions to the Palestinians, including permits for weapons, ammunition and bullet-resistant vehicles. In fact, those reports are contrary to the IDF's position for a complete lockdown on East Jerusalem and Palestinian cities in the West Bank, as DEBKAfile reported on November 23. The current offer, including a series of incentives such as the supply of weapons and ammunitions to Palestinian policement on the condition that they take action to reduce tensions and completely stop the wave of terror, was submitted to Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon by Gen. Yoav Mordechai, the IDF's coordinator of activites in the territories.
